New Hyundai Gamma 1.6 T-GDI engine

Hyundai showcased a new, in-house developed petrol engine. The Gamma 1.6 T-GDI engine, which was developed over a period of 52 months and cost 69.5 billion won, achieves the best performance figures in its class where the competition is the toughest. The engine beats its formidable rivals, boasting a maximum output of 204 hp at 6000rpm and 265 Nm of torque at 1750rpm.

In order to maximize fuel efficiency and performance, the engine uses an exhaust manifold integrated turbocharger with twin scroll, air guided intercooler, direct fuel injection system and dual CVVT, while a bed plate and a serpentine auxiliary belt were adopted to enhance engine reliability. By cutting down on exhaust emissions, the new engine meets California’s ULEV-2 (Ultra-Low Emission Vehicle) standard, known as the most stringent, as well as Euro 5 standards.
